If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so if the one that you gave at first is not valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
